While the majority of Brookhaven's town-operated beaches and pools ended their regular summer hours on Labor Day, West Meadow Beach is one of three town beaches that will operate one more weekend with lifeguards before the close of the summer season.
The same is true for Davis Park in Fire Island, Cedar Beach in Mt. Sinai and Corey Beach in Blue Point. Those four are the town's most popular beaches, according to Kevin Molloy, a town spokesman. They will be staffed with lifeguards between 10:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. this coming weekend, he said.
But at Stony Brook Beach, the Centereach pool and other favorite summer spots across town, lifeguards have officially left their posts for the season. It's been that way for decades in the Town of Brookhaven, Molloy said.
"All pools and the majority of beaches and summer recreation programs traditionally conclude Labor Day," he said.
